Wort's by William Jerome. Music by Andrew Mack.

I went to see a girl one night, and had to climb a fence,
On the other side,
And as the fence was very high, to climb I did commence,
On the other side.
It took me nearly twenty minutes just to reach the top,
And in my great excitement, why I think I never stopped,
And just as lightly as a kitten, quickly boys I dropped,
On the other side.

But her father had a bulldog I never saw before,
Be introduced himself to me, my clothes he nicely tore,
I told him he could keep the change, to get away I tried,
So I did, but left my Sunday trousers on the other side.

One day I saw a lady, she was walking down the street,
On the other side.
And dressed in latest fashion from her head down to her feet,
On the other side.
She was a block ahead of me, and I was not content,
And just to see her pretty face, upon that I was bent,
So like a foolish little boy, I very quickly went
On the other side.

Then I followed close behind, and I thought I was In luck,
By chance she dropped her handkerchief, I quickly picked It up,
But when she turned her face around, with fright I nearly died,
For I found she was the bearded lady, on the other side.

I went to shave my brother Jim, and let the razor slip,
On the other side,
Before I had a chance to think, I cut off half his lip.
On the other side.
I went and killed a chicken, and cut off a piece of skin,
I thought I would experiment upon my brother Jim;
As he raised no objection, why I stuck it onto him,
On the other side.

The experiment it happened to be a grand success
Until he raised it nice moustache, and then I must Confess
On one side there was lots of hair, but poor old Jimmie cried,
For he found some chicken feathers growing on the other side.
